2 arrested after police chase ends in crash in southwest Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - Two people have been arrested after crashing into several parked cars, a fence and a carport following a wild overnight chase.

It started around midnight near SW 29th and Lynn when an officer tried to pull over an SUV.

"He tried to stop that SUV, and that SUV failed to stop and initiated a pursuit," said Megan Morgan with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Marques Dixon was driving the SUV, and his passenger was Kylee Strader. Dixon continued to lead police on a high-speed chase until things came to a violent end.

"The officer followed him for quite a distance before the vehicle actually got away from him and he no longer saw where the vehicle was. A neighbor flagged him down, though, and said that the vehicle that he was involved in the pursuit with had actually crashed out," Morgan said.

The vehicle crashed out near SW 24th and Youngs. The driver crashed through the fence, into the carport and hit four parked cars.

"I wasn't here. I was with my mother. My neighbor called me, and I came running," Lalo Gonzales, the homeowner, told News 4.

Gonzales lives at the home where the suspects crashed. The crash even caused one of the windows to his home to shatter.

"There was a woman taken in an ambulance and, then, there was a young man that the police took in their car. They arrested two people," Gonzales said.

Dixon was arrested for numerous traffic violations, including eluding police.

Strader was booked into jail on several outstanding felony warrants and possession of meth.

"All of the vehicles that were involved in the crash, other than the suspect vehicle, were actually unoccupied, fortunately," Morgan said.
